adopted 25 Jun 1997

A shield divided vertically in two. On the right, on the red field, there is a stalk of wheat with two husks. Left field, chessboarded, is a historical sign of the commune, and at the same time reflects contemporary character of it. This comes from the Coat of Arms of the clan Wyskot, original owners of Krzemieniewo and nearby villages. The gold stalk of wheat stresses the rural character of the commune. Ripe stalk of wheat is a symbol of fertility and goodness of the earth. Also, it is a symbol of the force of life.
